Although early in the crazy season, I thought that it might be helpful to highlight the announced candidates for congress in the 4th District. The seat is being vacated by Jim McCrery after 10 terms.
Chris Gorman, Republican, was born in Shreveport in 1969. He graduated from Trinity Heights Christian Academy where he was an all-state football player. In 1995, he earned a B.A.A.S. in Computer Information Systems from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.
In 1999, Chris furthered his education and attended the Executive MBA Program at Harvard University.
Gorman is the Executive Vice President of Tango Transport. In this capacity, he is responsible for leading the Sales, Information Systems, Maintenance, Billing and Collections Departments. He serves as a member of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry’s Energy Policy Committee and its Health Care and Education Task Force.
He also has volunteered for the Shreveport-Bossier Community Renewal, Toys For Tots, the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank and his church.
Gorman and his wife Jaci have two sons, Hunter and Lee.
His website is not yet complete. I am anxious to see the issues section completed. I'm hoping that he will display some libertarian tendencies, and not just be another Republican rubber stamp. He will be an attractive candidate.
It is an interesting twist, and speaks well for both father and son, that his 14 year old is manning a YouTube site with two videos posted so far. I'm impressed to see a teenager taking an active interest in his father's race. The videos are posted below.
"I'm Hunter Gorman, son of Congressional candidate for the 4th district in Louisiana. I will be following him around with a video camera, my notepad, and a still camera to document the hard work that goes into a congressional race. I hope that you enjoy our first entry! Thanks..."
